Drunk at the Fat Man Bar

second day of NaPoWriMo – Poem Two — enjoy!

 

Drunk at the Fat Man Bar         Max Wolf Valerio

stiletto cat-face

                                      slinks into   —

                  a million miles of brawlers

 absurd         drawling ankle crawlers

                    drinking at the long bar

                    holding forth on the election

                    the fat pennies soar like eagles

                     while           dice play games with muscle cars

 

           — too far to go?

                               a high heeled woman dances

                                         with  paper mache

          the blow job inferno

                                                 flails

the big screen

TV

pumped and ready

                                    Beer!

                       as for me — I’m  wearing my best guns

                with a blues bottle neck guitar chord

                                                                            soaking up my gills  —
